Thermo Scientific ™ Zeba™ Spin Desalting Columns are made of low protein binding polypropylene, and are compatible with a wide range of standard laboratory instruments and consumables. 

Our Zeba columns are designed to be compatible with most swinging-bucket or fixed-angle bench- or floor-model centrifuges (please verify head clearance before use), and are available in 5 volume capacities and 2 molecular weight cut offs (MWCOs), 7K and 40K.

Compare Zeba Spin Desalting Columns

Table 1. Comparison of recommended sample volume capacity of common spin desalting products.


Table 2. Thermo Scientific Zeba Spin Desalting Columns provide exceptional protein recovery over a wider range of sample concentrations and volume compared to alternative products.

Desalting columns were equilibrated with a final buffer containing 25 mM Tris, 25 mM NaCl at pH7.5. Samples were dilutied in 25 mM Tris, 500 mM NaCl at pH 7.5 and then desalted into the final buffer. All samples were processed according to the manufacturers’ recommended instructions, but load volume may exceed recommended ranges (see below). There was no significant difference in salt concentration between any vendor when used within the recommended ranges. Protein concentration was determined using the Thermo Scientific™ BCA Assay (Product # 23227). Recoveries with lysate are typically slightly lower than seen with individual proteins due to the loss of small molecular weight compounds and lysis contaminants that can influence protein assay results.
